Our Baby Blanket Project for Salud Medical Center is really gaining momentum. Most of us are sewing at home and are excited to see all of the blankets as they are finished! If you are interested in joining in on the fun, it is not too late and we have made participation easier than ever!
Dale Rushton has assembled a number of “kits” to make baby blanket tops. This eliminates the need to shop for fabric, cut it to size, etc. All that is needed is for you to sew 25 squares into rows of 5 and then join the rows together. This is a perfect Advent project as we await the birth of the Baby Jesus. It is also a great beginner project if you haven’t sewn for a while, have limited time or have a child or grandchild who would enjoy an introduction to sewing and the opportunity to make a blanket that will be donated to a newborn in 2021.
After completing the blanket top, you have the option of sewing on the backing yourself or returning the completed top to the Sewing Ministry so that we can procure backing fabric and attach the back to the front.
